Agent Scott Boras said Thursday that heís already received 11 phone calls from baseball general managers inquiring about Jacoby Ellsbury and Stephen Drew.

Both players became a free agents when the World Series ended, although the Red Sox retain negotiating rights with them until Nov. 5.

"These players are very popular," Boras said.

Boras said he hoped to hear from the Red Sox soon and acknowledged thereís a lot going on. He didnít expect to hear from them until after Saturdayís parade to celebrate their World Series championship.

Boras said Drew, who struggled with his offense, went to visit an eye doctor before Game 6 and he wound up hitting a home run and hit the ball hard three times. Boras expects Drew to get some interest, and pointed out that Drew and Troy Tulowitski were the only shortstops who had an OPS of more than .775 during the regular season.
